I looked at pictures before I asked. They do not show or tell me anything about the electrical compatability between my SA6D140E-3 and the SAA6D140-P580 that I want to replace it with. That is my real question that I can't seem to find an answer for. It sure looks like it will bolt in no problem. Will my loader's engine control system make it run is what I am trying to find out.

Thanks for the update Ray. The only way you might be able to get away with it is to use your existing ECM and harness but we will need to be sure All the sensors are the same and the other concern is the emissions changes between the two engines which would create a software problem as you suspected. Is your current block still good? If so it would be much better to rebuild yours if possible.
